A Note from the Newsletter Editor
Hi Everyone,
 
I am planning a new column for the May newsletter and I need your help. Please share stories with me, in a few sentences, of the good things you have learned, kindnesses that came your way, how you are coping, or anything else from these extraordinary COVID-19 times. Also, let me know if you want to be anonymous.

Let’s spread these good things!

Thank you!
Nancy

P.S. As always, the newsletter deadline is the 20th of the month.
